Ce Certification

What are the requirements for automotive parts and components to be allowed in the European market?

In Europe, the quality of your products is often measured by meeting specific requirements. Failure to fulfill or fail to meet these requirements will or will disrupt your attempts to find buyers in the European market.

1.  Requirements to meet

Type approval – Compliance with technical standards for motor vehicles

All Vehicle Type Approval  (WVTA) is a certificate for various types and types of motor vehicles. EU legislation has introduced strict conditions for the harmonization of technical, safety and environmental standards among EU Member States (vehicles) and for agricultural and forestry tractors.

This type of approval or certification is valid in all EU Member States and is necessary when you wish to sell your products in the EU. Many automotive components have not been approved until final assembly. In these cases, it is not necessary to certify individual components; however, these components will have to comply with the type-approval requirements.

In 2017 the testing process will change. In addition to the current laboratory emissions and fuel consumption tests (  New European Driving Cycle  ), a  Real Driving Emission  (RDE) test will be performed. Europe is also   contributing to the development of a new global testing system called the World Wide Harmonized Light Vehicle Testing Procedure (WLTP).

Tips:

  • The Original Equipment Manufacturer and / or the approval authority determine the specific requirements that you must fulfill. These requirements vary widely per product and per market. This means that you may need to meet different requirements for different buyers and countries you export. Check the  specific type approval requirements of the receiver or approval authority for the parts you produce  .
  • An important requirement of the type approval certificate is the Production Eligibility (COP). COP, in conformity with the specification, performance and marking requirements in the product type validation legislation, refers to the ability to be produced in series which does not require another test. Make sure you have a suitable quality management system in place (see also dan Partner buyer requirements management section).

CE marking

Electronic equipment must be CE marked for marketing in the EU. The CE marking indicates that a product is assessed before it is placed on the market and meets EU safety, health and environmental protection requirements. The CE marking is sometimes also considered a means of conformity to the type-approval requirements; For example, electronic components requiring type approval and also electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) or CE marking for low-voltage equipment.

Tips:

  •  Learn more about the type approval in the EU Export Help Desk  .
  •  Learn more about the CE marking of electrical equipment in the EU Export Help Desk  .
  •  Follow step-by-step guidance in CE marking  .
  • If you are an electronics or electrical engineering manufacturer in the automotive industry   take a look at our work on these issues .

chemicals

To prevent environmental damage, the EU has restricted the use of certain chemicals in certain Regulations and Directives.

Tips:

  • In most cases, it is your EU buyer who is responsible for complying with the legislation on chemicals. Share information with your buyer regarding the substances used in your product, thus proving that it complies with all relevant legislation.
  • Ask your buyer about the chemicals policies and their expectations. Sometimes these directions are called ”black / gray“ lists. Does it provide a list of items you cannot use or would you like to receive information about the substances you use in a certain way? If you don’t yet know your buyer, try looking at a chemicals policy for a car brand. For example, ‘calling Volvo REACH.

Why CE Marking?

The European CE marking regulation has been mainly set up to:

  • Harmonize all varying national regulations for consumer and industrial products in European Member States, so that the Single Market is encouraged;
  • Bring about cost savings for producers;
  • Enhance the safety of products;
  • Supply public bodies with a uniform procedure that can be checked.In the past, product requirements and test procedures in Europe were set by the individual Member States of the European Union. This meant that, for example, companies that wanted to sell their products on the European market sometimes had to deal with more than ten different technical requirements or procedures for just one product. The existence of all the different national legislation was contrary to the aim of the European Union in realizing one Single Market, in which there would be a free circulation of goods (as well as a free circulation of persons, services and capital).

CE marking Directives or ‘New Approach’ Directives

All the different product requirements brought many costs for the producers. With the help of the CE marking Directives or ‘New Approach’ Directives, the measures have been optimized by setting up European (European-wide) requirements, the harmonization of national legislation and directives, standards and mutual recognition of the technical standards, tests methods (compliance tests) and test laboratories, so that producers no longer need to adapt their products to the different markets.

In European countries, security and safety

During the process of harmonization the safety level of all products was attuned and raised. In most European countries, safety and health had already been the subject of directives for many years but the safety level was not always satisfactory.

With the help of the conformity assessment procedures, the authorities can ascertain that the products that are placed on the market comply with the requirements as stated in the regulations of the directives. The CE marking is consequently largely for the benefit of the authorities. However, safe products are also necessary for the end user in the work or consumer environment.

CE Certificate of Lighting

Companies that want to use CE marking must keep the technical file they prepared for the product throughout production. If a functional change is made to the product, the technical file must be refreshed. However, under all other conditions, the technical file must be stored for CE mark validity.

What information should be included in the technical file?

The technical file should contain the basic and technical information about the product to which the CE marking is to be received, as well as the information about the company. The information that should be included in the technical file is as follows:

  • Basic information about the company
  • Label or plate bearing the technical data of the product
  • What the product is used for
  • List of national and international standards used in the production of the product
  • Reports of these tests if you have the test made for the product
  • CE Declaration of Conformity
  • If the manufacturers of the electrical, hydraulic and pneumatic components of the product have been tested and approved by their code numbers and specifications and a competent body,certification about this,
  • Current operating instructions for the product
  • If the product’s supply list and supply products are covered by CE, certificates and test reports of these products
  • Detailed descriptions of how the product is installed, how it works and how the product is maintained.

If there is a deficiency in the technical file

The missing or defective information in the technical dossier will delay the process of obtaining the CE certificate, For this reason, companies must be careful when preparing technical files. It may also be necessary to pass tests such as LVC, EMI and EMC according to the category of the products to which CE certificate is requested. In this case, the technical file should include other tests and reports that should be used in electrical, electronic and telecommunication equipment.
